The ability to produce an extracellular matrix and form multicellular communities is an adaptive behavior shared by many bacteria. In Bacillus subtilis, the model system for spore-forming bacteria, matrix production is one of the possible differentiation pathways that a cell can follow when vegetative growth is no longer feasible. While in B. subtilis the(More)
Rhodopseudomonas palustris is a purple photosynthetic bacterium characterized by a versatile nature and a remarkable ability to adapt to various environments. In this work, we focused our attention to its membrane characteristics and defined the structural and conformational features of the O-chain polysaccharide of LPS isolated from R. palustris strain(More)
The functional role of the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) in the regulation of arginine-vasopressin (AVP) release mediated by baroreceptor activation was investigated by examining the effects induced by the presynaptic alpha-adrenergic agonist clonidine. The present data show that microinjection of clonidine into NTS resulted in a significant attenuation(More)
